Climate change impacts and potential adaptation and mitigation activities through forest management: A critical analysis (PhD by Published Works)


Professor John Healey

My research

My research has two main theme: 1. assessing climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies in forest management; and 2. evaluating the forest carbon footprint of forest products including energy.


The papers that will form the body of my dissertation are:
